Garment of Praise

Isaiah 61:3

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness: that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.

A song based on this scripture inspired this piece. It is an important part of my faith journey. The darker shape over her head represents the spirit of heaviness. The dancing figue is praising God in the midst of difficult circumstances. It is only by the grace of God that any of us get through these times. When we praise God, as hard as it may be, it brings the healing and restoration that we need.

NOTE: The dye used in this piece is INKO - A dye that is basically clear but develops in the sun. Without the light of the sun, the brilliant colors would not appear. The fabric is cotton.
